HR Professional Development Series



Cultivating a Coaching Culture for the HR Professional



Session One: Creating a Coaching Culture: The Fundamentals


Companies and organizations that use coaching as a tool to drive performance and development report increased motivation and productivity.  Creating a “coaching culture” demonstrates that people are valued and that an investment is being made in their long-term success within the organization.  To succeed, however, the initiative must be navigated by individuals with the ability to influence others at all levels to ensure it is not a scattered and disjointed series of activities, but a coherent and integrated strategy that enhances many other aspects of the organization’s OD and L&D efforts.  Who better to spearhead the process than HR Professionals, who are ultimately responsible for talent management, development initiatives, leadership development and tying performance to business objectives and outcomes. In the first of this four-part series, participants will learn:

  • What coaching is and how it differs from other developmental processes
  •  The benefits of creating a coaching culture within an organization

Session Two: The Principles and Competencies of Coaching


Once an HR Professional has a thorough understanding of what coaching is and the myriad of benefits a coaching culture brings to an organization, the next step is to grasp the principles and competencies of coaching, who within their organization can model coaching behaviors, how to prepare them to coach others as well as in what circumstances coaching is appropriate and useful.  With this knowledge, an HR Manager can “sell” the concept of coaching at various levels so that the culture is accepted and utilized globally. In the second of the four-part series, participants will learn:

Session Three: The Coaching Process


There is no single, “right” model of coaching; approaches should be based on the needs of the organization and the individuals engaged in the process.  There, are however, universal do’s and don’ts that are aligned with the standards that all those who engage in the coaching process should follow.  It is the responsibility of the HR Professional to ensure that anyone modeling coaching within their organization are adhering to these standards to uphold the integrity of the process.  To do so, they themselves must learn how to effectively coach others both in knowledge and practice. In the third of this four-part series, participants will learn:

  • Various coaching approaches based on the needs of the organization and various individuals
